Bit Brigade performs rock covers of full NES game soundtracks as their gamer speed runs the game live on stage. On 10/10, at El Cid in Los Angeles, CA, they will be performing METROID + CONTRA www.bitbrigade.com www.facebook.com/bitbrigade w/ Double Ferrari www.doubleferrari.com doubleferrari.bandcamp.com Bit Brigade Bio: "When was the last time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of risk involved? And no, going to a Gwar show with a white t-shirt on doesn't count. When Bit Brigade takes the stage your mind will frantically oscillate between "Oh! Agh!! Please don't die!!" and "YES! He's doing it!!" Combining the dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on technique of a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you're seeing on-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the two mediums. From thrashing about to live renditions of your favorite stage themes, fingers yearning to the sky in a rock 'n roll parody of sea anemones seeming to silently plead, "Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!," to being locked in stock-still rapture as the infallible maestro of the d-pad, Noah McCarthy, takes on the final boss and risks his video game life under the threat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a credits score). No matter the outcome, Bit Brigade must play on until the deed is done - which it always is - on the first (and last) try. Once Noah’s NES buzzes on, there's no turning back." - Metalhead Mike of The Shizz, summer 2011 Facebook event page picture:
